Tundra Endeavour update

Toyota has posted a new video in their "Tundra Endeavour" series.



Quote:
...when NASA's recently retired shuttle makes the last leg of its long journey from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to the California Science Center in Exposition Park, it will be hauled part of the way by a Toyota Tundra truck.

It's a scene that seems made for a Toyota commercial. And it may well end up in one.

The carmaker plans to film the truck as it tows the massive shuttle across the 405 Freeway on West Manchester Boulevard.

But the transporter is not on the Caltrans list of vehicles approved for towing over bridges, according to William Harris, senior vice president of development and marketing at the Science Center.

Harris said Toyota, which has a long history of philanthropy at the Science Center, volunteered a Tundra for the overpass portion of the route. A special dolly will be used to help the truck haul the roughly 170,000-pound shuttle.

Space Shuttle Endeavour Update

Here's the schedule for Endeavour's move to the CSC.

Quote:
Endeavour should leave airport property and hit Westchester Boulevard about 2 a.m. Friday. From there, the shuttle will roll toward Sepulveda Boulevard, where it will sit in a parking lot for about nine hours beginning at 4 a.m. as crews de-energize and raise transformer lines ahead on the route.

By 2 p.m. Friday, the shuttle will depart down Manchester Boulevard toward the City of Inglewood...

The shuttle will make another six-hour stop in Inglewood as crews work on another transformer and should cross the 405 Freeway Friday night.

The orbiter will pass Inglewood City Hall about 8 a.m. Saturday, Lopez said...

An hour later, Endeavour will make a 30-minute stop at the Forum, where crowds of 10,000 to 14,000 people are anticipated.

... at about 2 p.m. will stop at the intersection of Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards for another planned public viewing.

I work right right next to NASA Ames, and just saw a dc7? I think, fly in to moffett field, pretty cool, along with the blackhawks and fighter jets landing all morning. Drive around NASA, but guess it's in a hanger....

You saw a DC7? Lucky guy! You don't see many of those.

Thought I'd post this. Space X's first contracted flight to the ISS.
